“The World Diamond Council is committed to establishing a sustainable and safe environment for mining communities, and we believe the OECD DDG assurance process is a critical factor for advancing that vision,” said WDC Acting President Stephane Fischler.
This is the first year that the WDC will speak at this important event. The 2018 Forum on responsible mineral supply chains is being held at the OECD Conference Centre in Paris, France from April 17-20, 2018.
Marie-Chantal Kaninda served as the president of the fifth edition of the ABBW, a forum organized by Africa Rise, a Belgium-based organization that aims to facilitate contact between European businesses and their African counterparts to promote Africa’s economic and social emergence.
The side event in New York was entitled “The Kimberley Process, sustaining peace and achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: the diamond industry as a model for transforming lives.”
